Divided into two sections, the first is subdivided into a short review of the context of donor activity in support of indigenous publishing, followed by an overview of some types of donor support. The pages on context look briefly at key issues such as language, capital, equipment, authorship, and copyright.

The overview describes types of support such as paper provision, training, the organising of loan schemes, and subsidising translation. The second, longer section of the book, gives details of organisations involved in support of to indigenous publishing with full contact details. The book serves as a reference detailing which organisations are undertaking what sort of work in support of publishing; it is also an introductory text to those new to the field.
